Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

He was imported by Eduardo Braun as a seven year old and competed up to the Grand Prix level on the east and west coasts before becoming a schoolmaster for an adult amateur. In 2010, a change of ownership meant a change of discipline as Ralando II transitioned to the hunter world with amateur rider (now turned professional), Arly Golombek. The pair amassed top placings and championships as both a Regular Working and A/O Hunter at elite A-Circuit shows including WEF, Kentucky Spring & Summer shows, the Kentucky National, Capital Challenge, Pennsylvania National and the National Horse Show. Before retiring from competition, Ralando II was competing & winning in the Adult Amateur divisions with students of Arly’s.

      I'm a big fan of the hunter foals that Cabardino is producing.

      I have a 2011 filly out of my Rio Grande/Continue mare that is so nice I am going to hang onto her as a broodmare prospect.

        I had the great pleasure of meeting Ralando II today. What a lovely stallion! He really has a great type and had a super career. The sBs licensed him for breeding today and I am very excited to see his offspring

        Congrats to Angela (and North American breeders!).

          Please take a look at our stallions Zeno has all the things that you are looking for. He is by Quattro and out of a Burrgraaf mare he made the switch from the 1.30m jumpers to the hunter ring this year as an 8 year old and was 7 consecutive times Champion or Reserve in the Green Conformation in CA and the Combined hunters here in AB. He has a super temperament is 17.1hh long straight legs and a great shoulder angle. Www.kvf.ca under stallions

            I am not "selling" him. I even said several times he is probably not the right stallion for OP's mare. Just dont like to see a nice stallion trashed. There are many nice RG horses around. I have no agenda as I don't own one nor have I bred one. However I have always wanted one and admired him. Enough said from my perspective on it. You can think whatever you want.

              What does everyone think about Cabalito?

              Comment


              • #67
                You have lots of great suggestions!! I love Cabilto and we want to try him as well! Personally from our own expereince and what we have seen from our own foals Apiro will seems reliable on giving a beautiful neck and "look", improves the movement in elasticiy and impulsion. I would also look at Landtinus, lots of jump.. great temperment, improvment in the movement and pretty.

                  LOVE Cabalito. Almost bought a two year old for a client that was drop dead gorgeous. Too green for this client, but quality all the way!

                    Have you considered Popeye K? He definitely has substance and size, is a nice mover and a great jumper. Plus, he is a real gentleman.

                    We are really pleased with our Popeye K filly.

                      Going in a different direction what about Contucci?

                        Betsy, I really like what I see and hear about Cabalito, though I've never seen any of his offspring -- or know little about the breeding of the mares that he has bred to that have produced good competition horses.

                        Knowing Allegria's breeding, I would not dismiss A Fine Romance (TB). I might be inclined to put a bit more TB blood back into her.

                        I've always admired that stallion. The owner ("Fred" on the COTH) forum is one of the most respected.

                        If I had a WB cross (by Argosy) and wanted to improve on that -- and no doubt your girly has done VERY well on the line and then took it to the comptetion venue -- that's probably the stallion I'd be looking at.

                        Before AFR, I would have been looking at Simbalu, or Bit of Class. Neither of them, nor do I think, AFR, will give you "hot". Just more of what you want out of her.

                        Just my 2 cents, for what it's worth. Give Miss Piggy a pat on the head for me.

                        Decisions, decisions...that's the hard part, and also the fun part, of serious breeding.

                        S.

                          Here is a pic of a Cabilito foal. I really like Cabilito and if he will work for your mare I would use him for sure.

                              Platinum vom Rappenhof is now standing at our farm in Cushing OK for fresh and on farm AI. Eight-time hunter champion in Canada. He is somewhat of a refining stallion but has long legs and puts on the height. He refines the head, as you can see in this foal photo. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...71895587_n.jpg

                              More photos of the stallion and his foals: http://www.equicommerce.com/listings/details/174

                                To the OP: Just The Best would be a very nice cross with your mare.
                                He's a hunter foundation sire for the KWPN-NA.

                                  I've run across some beautiful Balou du Rouet offspring, he certainly has had handsome stallions. What do people think about him?

                                    That is one of my favorite stallions. If I was breeding an amateur dressage horse for myself I would jump through fire to use him. I would not select him for a hunter or jumper. His offspring I have known were wonderful in all ways except not a one could jump their way out of a wet paper bag.
